Series: Movie Discussion Guide Bible Study
This historical epic follows one man s quest to find redemption amid the chaos of Crusades-era Jerusalem.
Kingdom of Heaven takes on the unwieldy Crusades by tracking the odyssey of a young French blacksmith, Balian of Ibelin, who seeks redemption in Jerusalem. As he struggles to live up to his unexpected nobility and knighthood, Balian becomes a pivotal voice of moderation between warmongering Crusaders who hold Jerusalem and Muslim general Saladin s looming army. As the uneasy peace crumbles, Balian confronts excruciating decisions about how best to protect those caught in the crossfire.
This study will help you discuss the intriguing themes in Kingdom of Heaven. What is the source of our conscience, and can we ever justify doing evil to bring about a greater good? What does the movie say about our ability to discern God s will? How can Christians affirm their beliefs while charitably engaging people of other religions?
